What Does Electrical Design Include?

Electrical design involves the planning and creation of electrical systems for various applications, ensuring they are safe and efficient and meet specific requirements. 

Electrical design encompasses several key aspects, including:

  • Power distribution: We design a distribution system that efficiently and effectively delivers electricity to different areas or individual units.
  • Lighting design: We handle the layout and selection of lighting fixtures to achieve the designed illumination levels, energy efficiency, and aesthetic appeal. 
  • Electrical wiring: We determine the routing, sizing, and capacity of electrical conductors to ensure proper distribution of power. 
  • Control systems: Our experts handle the specification and integration of control systems – such as switches, relays, and programmable logic controllers (PLC) – to regulate and monitor electrical equipment and processes. 
  • Safety measures: Our team prevents electrical hazards and ensures the safety of occupants and equipment through grounding, overcurrent protection, and surge protection. 
  • Energy efficiency: We offer comprehensive electrification services, which involve incorporating energy-efficient technologies and optimizing system performance to reduce energy consumption, lower utility costs, and minimize environmental impact. 
  • Code compliance: Our electrical designs adhere to local and national electrical codes and standards to maintain compliance with regulations and safety. 
  • System integration: We integrate various subsystems – such as HVAC controls, fire alarms, and security systems– to create a comprehensive and integrated electrical infrastructure.
